John-Son Oei

Throughout his angsty youth, John-Son never lost one lovable trait—a big heart. He started the non-profit Epic Homes that utilises detailed planning and volunteers to build homes for marginalised communities like the orang asli. He now helms Epic Collective as group CEO, which also includes Epic DNA and Epic Communities. In March, Epic Communities successfully completed a Proto-park project in Millenium Park, Subang in partnership with MPSJ and Hannah Yeoh, where young people got to build their own park. His desire to help improve the lives of others stems from the unconditional love he received as a teen, after the loss of his father.

Did you know: John-Son launched the rebranded Epic Collective on his 30th birthday this year. Talk about a milestone!
